How I Can Help
Human Health Advocates is the premier advocacy firm in Florida for negotiating medical debt reduction.We conduct review of invoices, and engage in reconciliation via correction of errors,seeking to enforce rights of coverage under insurance policies, and negotiating with providers. In addition to dealing with numerous hospitals, surgeons, and other providers, we carefully review health insurance policies to determine the availability of coverage. When adverse insurance decisions occur we frequently seek reconsideration and/or prepare appeals on behalf of our clients. We also work with Probate Estates, seeking to reduce claims involving medical debt. We are strong believers in preventative planning--reviewing one's coverage, helping determine where to have scheduled procedures, and negotiating reduced self-pay rates for procedures.Many times, hospitals and other providers use a collections agency to pursue medical debt. We assist in dealing with matters in collections.We have conversant knowledge of the No Surprises Act. We can represent high-dollar,multiple provider cases, or merely seek to Provide a better understanding of your situation, and the options you have to address it effectively,and guidance on how to proceed, in limited telephone sessions. FIRST 15 minutes is complimentary. Thereafter, we charge $75 per 30 minute sessions. We find that this makes our services more accessible as well as providing the opportunity to gain a better understanding of one's billing and insurance situation--necessary in order to identify and implement the best strategy.
We also work with uninsured and under insured patients.We understand that this group of patients has zero protection from the No Surprises Act regarding charges for an unscheduled procedure. We have conducted dozens of negotiations on behalf oof uninsured and underinsured patients.
My background as a commercial litigator and State-Certified Mediator allowed me to cultivate strong analytical and negotiating skills.

Why I Became A Professional Health Care Advocate
As a former practicing attorney, I had the opportunity to represent clients both against insurance companies, and in one instance, on behalf of an insurance company, Realizing the great gap in knowledge on the part of patients and their families about medical debt and proper utilization of health insurance--and being wrongfully over billed for a hospital procedure, sent to collections, and resolved for a full write-off, I realized the importance of helping others with medical debt reduction(through analysis, insurance appeals, and much negotiating). Nine years ago, I formed Human Health Advocates, based in Boca Raton,FL. We have successfully conducted well over one-hundred hospital negotiations in more than twenty states--and many other provider negotiations on a broader geographical basis.
